Pipe Flashing Leaks
Pipe Flashing Repairs are the most common repairs. There are multiple ways on repairing Pipe Flashings, but the most common is to apply a new flange over the old cracked one. Most of our service techs can address Pipe Flashing Repairs by having the material on their vehicles. Many other roofing companies will just apply roof cement around the broken flange, this may buy you some time but will not be a perment repair. Another way to repair a Pipe Flashing is to remove the shingles around the Pipe Flashing and install ice and water shield, and a new Pipe Falshing. This is more extensive and should only be done if the shingles are in good shape, and the metal on the pipe Flashing is rusted or has holes in it.
Chimney Flashing Repairs are another common repair. If you look in the photo to the left the shingles are new and the chimney flashing was not replaced during the install. EAS Roofing sees this a lot, it is a result of a roofing company not having the correct tools for the job (a brake). EAS Roofing will not only replace your chimney flashing during the install but we will also replace or repair the chimney flashing that the last roofing company didn't. Chimney Flashing is an important part of your roofing system and it is also something that could really add to the overall look of your house, Ask EAS Roofing for samples of colors that might look better with your home.
Skylight Repairs can be as simple as resealing the factory seal, where the glass meets the metal. UV rays deteriorate the black adhesive and allows rain to roll down the glass and seep into the house. There are also more intensive repairs that require the removal of the shingles around the skylight or even the whole skylight.
Most skylights that EAS Roofing repairs are not because of a workmanship error but rather the factory seal starting to fail. When it is because of workmanship the whole skylight or flashing kit has to be replaced. If your roof is newer (1-5years) and your skylight starts to leak then odds are it is a workmanship error. If your roof is near the end of its useful life then it is probably the factory seal that has failed. Call our Service team today if this is an issue that your dealing with.
Solar Attic Fans
Solar powered attic fans are usually installed on Hipped roofs to help pull air in from your soffit panels. But on occasions they are also used on gabled roofs to pull air in from the gable vents. Having correct ventilation will prolong the life of your roof and keep your house cool in the hot summer months. Solar power attic fans are also a lot quieter then your typical electric powered attic fan.
Ridge Vent Repair
Metal ridge vent repairs are fairly common and can be a simple repair, but in most cases homeowners just want to get rid of the problem all together and have the ridge vent replaced with a newer model. If you are experiencing a leak in the middle of your house odds are this is the culprit. For the simple repair our techs usually just have to install a couple nails and reseal all the exposed nail heads, usually there is an exposed nail head every 12 inches on each side so 2 per foot. When the black metal gets hot the old roof cement starts to dry out and crack, leaving the nails vulnerable to the rain.
Ice dams are obviously a issue you will only have in the winter months but it can be the worst leak you ever have as well. Their are many reasons why ice dams can occur but the most common is not having the correct insulation. If your heating your house and losing heat, the snow is going to melt off the top. Once the snow reaches the overhang were you are no longer heating it turns to ice and starts to climb up the shingles. Ice dams can sometimes be prevent with the installation of an Ice and Water Barrier and should be installed on any new install 2 foot past the interior wall.
Missing shingles are usually the case of high winds but they can also occur due to improper installation. If the installer is nailing the shingle higher then the installation methods call for the nails are not holding the shingle underneath it. Every shingle actually has 2 rows of nails because of the coarse above it. Most shingles are rated over 100mph but reducing the nails your lucky to get half that. The issue that EAS Roofing has with these type of repairs is that although we can replace the areas that have been affected the whole roof was installed this way and to truly never have to worry about it again you would have to have a full roof replacement. Which is almost never done because the roofs with blow offs are usually 10 year or newer.
Nail pops are usually caused by the installer improperly driven in. If the compressor is set on too high of a psi it will blow threw the shingle, if it isn't set on high enough setting it will be under driven and allow a "nail pop" to occur. Nail pops can also occur if the pressure on the air compressor is set to the perfect setting by driving he nails in on an angle. Most roof installs have thousands upon thousands of nails, and it only takes one nail to be installed improperly to cause a leak. Usually not a very big leak but none the less a leak. So next time you notice a small spot on the ceiling or a crack in the drywall don't ignore it... it won't go away on its own.
Valley flashing can be a must on different types of shingles, but you want to make sure that the metal is undamaged. If your valley flashing gets a nail hole you could be in for some damage. Unlike a nail pop were one bad nail usually doesn't cause much damage, a valley is were the majority of your water will run off your roof. Which means the majority of the water has a chance of coming inside. EAS Roofing has seen metal crack were the bend is or were a tear off shovel made a hole. In most cases sealant is used to repair until the roof is replaced and the valley flashing is redone. The alternative is to remove the shingles around the valley and install a new metal flashing and shingles.
